Love and prayers for peace and comfort to the family of Elaine Gray. Elaine Gray's life influenced four generations of my family. As a neighbor, she was a friend to my grandparents, my mother's best friend, the mother of my childhood best friend, and always had a welcome sign out for my children to her pool. She was kind, caring, loving, and involved to the people in her life. How she loved her family! I was blessed to have her in my childhood and my adulthood. Her passing is a great loss, but heaven's gain. Give Mom a big hug for me, Mrs. Gray.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow. Your Mom and family were such great neighbors always watching out for each other. It's a special bond the Corriveau's and Gray's will always have.

I met Elaine when she was working at Grappone in Bow as receptionist. She was awesome and always greeted people with a smile. She handled both the patient and impatient customers, explained their bills so that they could easily understand just what their vehicle's repair required and "most that I saw" actually calmed down and left with a genuine "thank you". She almost made it enjoyable to take your vehicle in for servicing ! She was definitely missed when she left the job.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. So many wonderful childhood memories of time spent with you all at and around the Gray home - all those kickball and Capture the Flag games! May your memories and love for each other bring you peace during this difficult time.
